The Nashville Predators begin the March portion of their schedule with P.K. Subban's return to Montreal (tonight at 6:30 p.m. CT). 

The Preds (32-22-9) have points in six-straight contests following their dramatic comeback win in Buffalo (5-4 in overtime) on Tuesday and are seeking their first five-game winning streak of the season. Tonight, they'll be led by Subban's first return to Montreal since he was traded to Nashville for Shea Weber on June 29, 2016.

Montreal (35-21-8) has won three games in a row - all of them in overtime - and are 4-2-0 overall under new head coach Claude Julien. The Habs made several moves surrounding Wednesday's Trade Deadline Day, including the acquisitions of forwards Dwight King, Andreas Martinsen and Steve Ott and defensemen Jordie Benn and Brandon Davidson. 

Nashville made a single deal yesterday, picking up P.A. Parenteau. The forward is not expected to be in the lineup tonight. 

The Predators held a full morning skate on Thursday. Below is their projected lineup based on the session:

Forwards

Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson

Colin Wilson - Calle Jarnkrok - James Neal

Kevin Fiala - Mike Fisher - Craig Smith

Cody McLeod - Vernon Fiddler - Austin Watson

Defense

Roman Josi - Ryan Ellis

Mattias Ekholm - P.K. Subban

Matt Irwin - Yannick Weber

Goaltenders
